Hey, just wondering if anyone has any tips on what are good cards to use against lvl 95 thieves?

I'm just wondering is there are any cards that dominate thief battles? I'm currently taking about 8 battles to defeat 1 thief :( Wanting that final card to get the 5* from this event :)

Any help would be appreciated! :)

Current deck:

Bellona - lvl 10
Artemis - lvl 10
Aranyani * 2 - lvl 10
Dream Whisper - lvl 10
Phoenix - lvl 15
Meteor Mage * 2 - lvl 16 + 20
Tiamat - lvl 10
Arch mage - lvl 10

I know my deck isn't the best or anywhere near it but I've not had the best rng for getting cards on the game :p

considering you have 2 Meteor Mages, you're doing okay. Especially if you can pick up some cards from this current event (I'm sure I'll be saying that from now till the distant future).

I'm from the old days where a full deck of Frost Treants + Thundershield does a good job in clearing thieves relatively easy. Swap in other Ice Shield cards and you'll do even better. If you're willing to spend some gold, it's worth upgrading Frost Treants to lv 15 + skill shuffling to get regen 5. (one with blizzard does well too). After that, if you have a level 10+ Valkyrie Martyr/Doom Diviner/Rhea/Forest Dragon etc, they may be worth using too.

There's quite a lot of people that use their main deck to one shot thieves, but I dont regret my decision in the slightest.

Long story short, Thief cards have way too much hp and dmg; you just have to mitigate the damage output and it becomes simple.

5 Frost Treants
2 Dark Punishers
2 Naiad
1 Rain Summoner

Runes:

Thundershield
Ray Prison
Spring Breeze
Tornado

Took me 2-3 battles to beat a Thief. On rare occasions, it one-shot Thief. Of course, they all has to be evolved and upgraded to the max.

Go with anything with Ice Shield if low level or if you have Dark Punishers they are gods against thieves.

Ive been using monkey king(to recycle cards), 2 forrest dragom, santa, 2 easter bunny, 2 doon diviner, and 2 roaring rageblood(both half the atk of csrds so 2k atk becomes 500 when both are out). Usually 1-2 hit wins. Rarely it takes 3, legendary thieves are about 4 to 5 standard

For the guy who asked in the Halloween thread:

Princess Sakura 20
Princess Sakura 18
Doom Diviner 15
Doom Diviner 10
Dark Punisher 15 craze 5
Dark Punisher 15 trap 2
Frost Treant 15 regeneration 5
Frost Treant 15 healing 2
Mammoth 15 rejuvenation 6
Valkyrie Martyr 16 blizzard 1

Thundershield
Permafrost
Red Valley
Soul Shield

When I can replace the two Princess Sakuras with Valkyrie Martyrs my thief deck will be complete.

I'm only level 70 so I guess getting the thief card from this event isn't going to be a viable goal for me.

If you look into the Thief Deck thread and if you have Crystals left (don't spend them on the Time Limit Pack) maybe you could kill a Thief in 3-4 hits = 20 Crystals / Thief. Or you focus on the Tower Card first and if you get it try Thiefes after that. Since this event doesn't force you to spend crystals this should be the best way to kill Thiefes without wasting time for waiting 5 minutes to be able to attack again.
